    The man asked Obama a question and right made him into an icon for the losing side. I don't know if you realized this or not, but his question wasn't a bombshell. Hell it wasn't even posed in an honest manner. He made himself out to be something he was not. "Hey Barak, your tax plan would raise my taxes wouldn't it?" WOW! What a poignant question, and asked on camera too! Your side blew him up, your sides candidate built a platform around this jerkwater nobody.

    Your side rallied around him like he was some kind of saint. Saint Joe the Plumber, Patron Saint of the Desperate Partisan.

    You lost. You lost. You lost. You lost.

    The vitriol of the left has nothing to do with it. This guy is a male version of Kim Roberts only there is no lacrosse team being accused of rape.

    You are the one who can't let this moron go. He epitomizes why the right went down in flames.

    Trump Derangement Syndrome, or TDS, affects millions of right wing Americans. Symptoms include frequent use of "whataboutisms," irrational rants about how the DNC, GOP, MSM, FBI, NSA, CIA, and FB are all conspiring to get Trump, blaming Obama and/or Clinton for things Trump has done or is doing, and a bizarre admiration for Vladimir Putin. Known TDS vectors are Fox News and the @RealDonaltTrump twitter feed.

    One day he is going to realize that over half the country think he is nothing more than a big clown.
    Then, half the country is quite stupid and probably jelious...
    And, I for one, will have the last laugh if he is successful....
    He cannot do any worse than our present band of boiler room writers..

    A real journalist has skills and qualifications far beyond those of a mere reporter or "correspondent".....
    I suspect JTP can correspond well enough to supply a smattering of info to some small news show.

    Or provide commentary for the largely uneducated masses his persona has been almost been tailored to fit like a cheap suit. It's a matter of making 'Joe Average' feel like he understands just what the hell is going in the Middle East even though he's got a bare as knuckles knowledge of the geopolitical factors involved. It's kind of like grabbing some stick up kid from the Bronx and putting him up on a stage to discuss Nietzsche.

    For what it's worth, the average "Joe Average" probably has a more nuanced and thoughtful approach to the situation in the middle east than the majority of dbags who claim to be knowledgeable about it.

    I'll remember that when Joe The Plumber isn't invited to the next world summit.

    Really, I Can't "let him go"?


    Who keeps starting threads on this guy and Palin?


    Please lerxst, I know you love to rally about sides and partisanism, but you would have to be a blind partisan to think I actually give a crap about joe the plumber....


    Its not me or my side who posts pages about how his first name is samuel, It is not me who starts threads everytime he blows his nose.... it's rediculous how one man who dared ask the one, the question that affects some people in this country is attacked by the hyper left....

    No his question was not a bombshell, however it was a question the media would never ask the one. why you on the left find this so appalling I will never know.



    Give it a rest already, and do me a favor, next time Disney starts a thread about Samuel Joe, don't tell me I am the one who can't let him go.
